Artists' Effects Palette

© 2011, Martin Rinehart

(What's our artist working on? Is that the color of his smock?)

Today you mix just red, blue and green. But unlike yesterday, when you applied the paint to canvas, your colors can move and change as the viewer looks at your work—Hogwarts magic is coming closer.

The smart designer knows that a good frontend engineer can add to the palette. A good frontend engineer knows that the job is not only to translate the designer's vision to pixels. The challenge is to put more on the designer's palette than was there just yesterday.

Here are some effects that could be on your palette tomorrow.

Thanks Wikipedia (and never assume).
